WELCOME TO THIS CHRISTIAN WEBSITE

Welcome to this Christian Website which has now been going for a number of years. Over 128,000 people have visited it since 2006. On the left hand side of the introductory page is a host of subjects and material that have been placed during this time and is there for your interest, study and perusal.

I feel it is time and right to change the format and to present day by day something a little simpler and trust will benefit and bless those who visit it. It will consist of a Prophetic Word for Today, A Golden Promise from the Scriptures, Just a Thought by Aaron Linford. Choice Quotations and something to Focus your mind on are included that can be developed more fully by you. I trust you will find such refreshing and helpful

A PROPHETIC WORD FOR YOU

One of the principal things that the Lord is seeking to create and cultivate within you is real faith in Himself and in His Word. If you are to really please and know His workings and interventions in your life in a continuous and dramatic manner, then you must possess a genuine trust in His person, His character and words of promise. He will ever be active and endeavouring to produce this positive base and inspiration because He has so much to release and do through you that will be rewarding. Spend time in the Scriptures and seek the blessing of the Holy Spirit in a vibrant manner and they will enable you to become the person in and through choice things are wrought today. Be assured, whatever He has been and done for others in the past serve as but illustration of what is yet to be known in greater degree in you.

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“ Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom can be no variation, nor turning shadow”- James 1: 17
Just think of this promise for a moment. God is saying that anything good that you receive in your life comes directly from Him. That beautiful sunrise, the twinkle in a loved one’s eye, even that raise at work. All good gifts come from the one true Father.

The Bible says that the sun shines on the just and the unjust. So that means His gifts are not just reserved for those who have received the free gift of eternal life. Every good and perfect gift comes from the Father of Lights.

In James 1:17, it also says that God does not change like shifting shadows. He is the same yesterday, today and forever! Hallelujah for such a gracious, loving heavenly Father who is a giver at the very centre of His heart!

In Matthew 7:7-11, Jesus encourages us to keep on asking, seeking and knocking because God is a good Father and delights to give good gifts to His children. Like any healthy father/child relationship, it breaks the Father’s heart if we only seek Him for the things He gives us. The gifts He gives are really only the icing on the cake.
The most amazing thing that we can ever receive from God is the gift of Himself! It humbles me to think of this promise. To think how kind and loving, and generous our Heavenly Father is. It just makes me want to run to Him again and again and thank Him for being so good to me!

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
ACCELERATION

T Sharper Knowlson in his book, “Put on Your Thinking Cap” (pg 156) quotes philosopher Schills as saying: “We may detect a law of acceleration pervading history.” He believed that the rate of change in evolution is clearly increasing and that such changes issue at shorter intervals.

This seems manifest in modem times. Within this twentieth century knowledge burgeoned so rapidly that it is difficult for normal folk to keep abreast of developments. Computers have speeded up our acquisition of data. Internet now links millions of enthusiasts to cosmic-wide information – science has delved into nature’s secrets more deeply, astronomers probe further and further into space, seeking the origin of the universe in which we live. And there seems no end to what may increasingly be discovered.

What the next century will reveal (or even the next decade) is mind-boggling.
Does all this give deeper meaning to the words of Jesus – “Behold, I come quickly” (Rev 22:7,12,20). The rapid acceleration of historical events may reach that divine climax sooner than some may expect. At least we can “speed its coming” (2 Pet 3:12 NIV) by holy living and fervent anticipation. Speed on the day; our hearts are ready!

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“True contentment is the power of getting out of any situation all that there is in it” – Chesterton

“Enjoy your own life without comparing it with that of another” – Condorcet

“You can within yourself find a mighty, unexplored kingdom in which you can dwell in peace if you will” – Conwell

“There is a sufficiency in the world for man’s need but not for man’s greed” – Gandhi

“Be happy with what you have and are, be generous with both, and you won’t have to hunt for happiness” – Gladstone

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
THE IMPORTANCE OF PRACTICAL WISDOM Thomas Addington

“All this I tested by wisdom and I said, “I am determined to be wise’—but it was beyond me. Whatever wisdom may be, it is far of and most profound—- who can discover it? So I turned my mind to understand to investigate and to search out wisdom and the scheme of things and to understand the stupidity of wickedness and the madness of folly.” Ecclesiastes 7:23-25

Sometimes wisdom is hard to grasp. Great philosophical thinkers leave us in the dust. We don’t really understand their first argument, much less the conclusion they draw fifteen steps later. Ethical theories are complicated and don’t really help us make good decisions at all. – So if we want to be wise, what should we do?

Solomon makes it clear that wisdom includes a daily and constant dose of God’s Word. We’re kidding ourselves if we think we will develop lives of wisdom with actions that follow if we don’t understand and know God’s Word.

But Solomon adds something else in this passage. He suggests that if we Really want to understand wisdom, we can become students of the “scheme of things” (Ecclesiastes 7:25), or how things really work. We can study the motives behind the actions, the meaning behind the words, and the reasons for changes in direction.
When Solomon—the ultimate realist—suggests that we understand the scheme of things, he is begging us to watch the world with careful eyes and to see what goes on in our daily work context in much the same way that we would observe a case study. We should study how people get ahead. We should listen to the nuances in suggestions that are made and decisions that are announced. Our purpose is to chronicle our findings and

Solomon is essentially asking us to use our experience as a way of building wisdom. What good is an experience-rich résumé if we have not turned that experience into wisdom by\becoming an expert in how things really happen?

We don’t live in a perfect world. We won’t until Jesus comes again. But we can navigate an imperfect world, at least in part, by being observant about what goes on around us.
